Change My Benefits

Each year during annual enrollment you will have an opportunity to make changes to your benefits. Outside of that, there are certain life events that may also allow you to make changes. These are known as qualifying life events. Review the checklist below to understand what actions you should take if you experience a life event.  

  • The Basics

    If you get married or divorced, have a baby or experience another qualifying life event, you can update your BSW benefits coverage to reflect your new situation.

    But keep in mind, you must take action within 30 days of the event. Once you make changes, they are effective immediately. For a complete list of qualifying life events, view our Summary Plan Description.

What to Do 

Submit your event

You must submit your life event in PeoplePlace within 30 days. View the instructions to submit a life event (log in required) for assistance.

Note: If you add new dependents to the plan, you will be required to verify their eligibility. If eligibility is not verified within 60 days, coverage for the applicable dependent will be discontinued. Be on the lookout for a mailed packet from the Dependent Verification Center to your home address on record. View the dependent verification section for more details.
